Shanghai reopens some public transport, still on high COVID-19 alert

Global News published this video item, entitled “Shanghai reopens some public transport, still on high COVID-19 alert” – below is their description.

Shanghai reopened a small part of its subway system on May 22 after some lines had been closed for almost two months, as the city paves the way for a more complete lifting of its intense COVID-19 lockdown next week.

With most residents not allowed to leave their homes and restrictions tightening in parts of China’s most populous city, commuters early on Sunday needed strong reasons to travel.

Xu Jihua, a migrant construction worker, arrived at a subway stop before it opened, hoping to get to a rail station, then home to the eastern province of Anhui.

A woman who asked only to be identified by her surname Li said she needed to visit her father in a hospital 8 km from her final stop.

The city of 25 million expects to lift its city-wide lockdown and return to more normal life on June 1. Most restrictions on movement will remain in place in May.
